UPDATED: news clips from our press conference yesterday about violation of student privacy by State Education Department

   UPDATE:  More news clips about our press conference Sunday include Daily News  and the WNYC blog, where the State Education Department said  student “data cannot be sold without explicit consent from school districts.” Wow!  Doesn't that make you feel so much better, knowing that Bloomberg and Walcott will have the authority to decide what private vendors get access to your child's confidential information? Please sign our petition against providing our children's confidential data to private corporations!

Video and sound clips were also featured on NY1 last night and WNYC radio this AM, but I cannot find the links; pl. send them if you do.  More soon, Leonie

Newsclips so far today of our press conference today about the violation of student privacy  by the NYS Education Department, which is going to share confidential student data with a Limited Corporation, called the Shared Learning Collaborative, run by the Gates Foundation and Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation.

See video from ABC news below; also AP/NBC and CBS radio, where you can comment on how you feel about this proposal.
